Living and Learning: The Week Ahead




In My Garden
My roses continue to delight me!  I do need to give them a little tender care this week...  they've developed some black spot, so I need to remove and burn the infected leaves and spray some fungicide on the bushes to prevent it from returning.  I also would like to prune my hydrangea bush and "water dry" the blooms.  Finally, while on the hunt for chrysanthemums in the perfect shade for the front porch, I spotted a large and healthy eucalyptus plant at the nursery for two dollars! I snapped it right up and just need to give it a nice pot and a place on the patio.

Inspiration
I absolutely love following Rebekah Markewich on Instagram and was thrilled when she mentioned that she had resumed blogging.  Matushka Rebekah's photography is stunning and I love the beautiful and peaceful atmosphere that she has created on her social media accounts.

Watching
I really enjoyed this video on Getting Dressed in the 18th Century:
 

In the Kitchen
I thought that the days of peach galettes were gone until next July, but then my friend, Lila, gave me six gorgeous and fragrant peaches on Friday and that's all I've been dreaming of since.  I think that I'll make one this afternoon!

On My Bedside Table
Lately, I have felt drawn to read a mystery and have found just the thing:  The Complete Stories of Miss Marple.  I think that Miss Marple just might be my favorite lady detective!  Agatha Christie wrote quite a few books about Miss Marple, so I have lots to look forward to!

I've been enjoying G K Chestetsons Fr Brown short stories. They are more cheeky and spiritually thoughtful than the series on TV, though it is ok.
